Flagler College’s new, multimillion-dollar Ringhaver Student Center is almost finished.
Major construction of the 42,000-square-foot building on the corner of Sevilla and King streets has wrapped up. The center will open its doors this month, offering students an Internet cafÃ©, modern recreation lounge and more.
“Everything about the facility is exciting,” said Daniel Stewart, Flagler’s dean of student services. He listed a host of new features and activities planned for the center, including Pilates, yoga, aerobics and ballroom dancing instruction; billiard, foosball, ping pong and air hockey tables; movie nights in the domed Gamache Theater; and a variety of food options at Bugg’s Bistro.
The building aims to be the epicenter of student activity on the 2,200-student campus. In addition to the dining and lounge areas, it will be home to the college bookstore, multi-purpose rooms, faculty offices and the student and career services offices.
A dedication ceremony for the Ringhaver Student Center is planned for September. More details on that event — along with the completion of the Molly Wiley Art Building rehabilitation — will be provided as they become available.
